You sure were. I like that one. I like this theme. I have a bunch I could use already from the weekend, but I think I'll hold out for now.

I can't believe we are pretty much half way through with no more entries. I suspect it being the summer may have something to do with it and a lot of people are on their holidays etc.

Just waiting still. I haven't processed any of the shots I took this weekend. There were a couple I wanted to see for entering. I hopefully won't forget this time.

Fine, but I've got 10 days to find something better, haha. I wanted to use my car but I haven't gotten anything that I really like yet. This one was cool though, caught a stream on the way down.

On the plus, I think my photography/post processing skills have increased quite a bit recently, so hopefully I start getting more quality shots. Still learning this camera.

Nice car and nice shot.
